Krisha turns 2! – Birthday party ideas

So last month, my darling little daughter turned 2. (Phew! I am still in shock!) She has grown up faster than I can imagine! It has been a roller coaster ride!! But the best part of being a parent in these 2 years is waking up to Krisha’s smile and snuggles every morning and witnessing the many milestones she has achieved in these two years. I simply love her to bits!!

Anyway, I had an amazing time organizing a small birthday party even though in a very short time. To be honest, I had no intentions of throwing her one because I wasn’t sure if she would really enjoy it. Krisha wasn’t very social and did not really like being around a lot of people. But lately, I noticed she was mingling better with the other kids and was getting better at her social skills. So it was only 2 weeks before her birthday did I decide to arrange a little birthday party. I wanted to make it really special for my little girl.

It was a must for me to have almost everything at this party to be handmade (All thanks to Pinterest for the last minute ideas)!!. It took me days of sleepless nights but was worth it all!

I decided to go with Owl as a theme because just like her mum she loves them too.

I started off making handmade invites first.IMG_9649IMG_9669

Here is a look at one of them.IMG_9681I painted it gold and gave it some eyes and wings.IMG_9765Here is a full view of her birthday table.IMG_9742

IMG_9793This altered letter K was my favorite piece on the table.IMG_9805I baked some chocolate walnut cookies and decorated it with chocolate chips and jelly beansIMG_9756I made some cone cakes topped with some whipped cream and sprinkles. IMG_9761As for snacks, the menu included wholewheat pizzas, spring rolls and corn cheese bites.

And finally here is the my birthday girl gorging on to some pizzas!!IMG_9843
